10th October is the annual World Mental Health Day, nestled in the middle of World Mental Health Month. The theme for 2023 is “mental health is a universal human right”, raising awareness of inequalities.
Coinadrink Limited helps pioneer good mental health through employee perks in the workplace, where so many of us will spend so much of our time.
From office coffee machines to fully managed vending machine services, Coinadrink has been enhancing workplaces in and around the West Midlands for over 60 years.
Our range of refreshment facilities are ideal for almost any environment, including:
- Shop floors.
- Breakout areas.
Whilst our solutions alone aren’t enough to overhaul the mental health of your team, together with other initiatives they can be surprisingly powerful and valuable tools.
In the modern world, where staff satisfaction is crucial for retaining your star talent, employees need to feel as though they are appreciated. Our refreshment solutions help your staff take a break at work every now and again, either alone or with colleagues.
We can even help design custom breakout areas for them to enjoy!
Time to talk over a coffee?
Taking a break over a tea or coffee is fast becoming synonymous with the working day. Instead of being frowned upon, the benefits of doing so mean it’s becoming more encouraged by business leaders.
Studies past and present show the value in taking a break over a hot drink in the workplace.
- In 2014, Staples found that 85% of employees agreed that taking regular breaks boosted their wellbeing and productivity.
- More recently, a study from Nespresso unearthed that 81% of respondents said that coffee breaks can increase staff relationships.
- Moreover, 83% of respondents working for a company with at least 20 employees said coffee breaks help relieve stress.
With the benefits of hot drinks breaks clear to see, find out how you can adapt or overhaul your workplace to encourage them with an office coffee machine!
What other vending machine services can you experience?
Break times can be enjoyed alongside other refreshment facilities in addition to hot drinks. Coinadrink is an experienced vending machine operator that provides a variety of solutions including:
- Fresh food vending machines.
- Snack vending machines.
- Cold drinks vending machines.
- Water coolers and dispensers.
- Micro Markets.
These facilities are equally as valuable towards the wellbeing of your staff, promoting valuable break times that decrease stress and drive wellbeing.
Better still, they can fully managed with service and replenishment by us.
Why not consider adding more than one solution to your workplace in light of World Mental Health Day?
How vending can drive a better workplace on World Mental Health Day.
You can install a vending machine, office coffee machine or water cooler almost anywhere in your building.
To get the most out of a break time, we suggest adding these facilities to a designated breakout area or quiet space. This will encourage your staff to come away from their responsibilities which will maximise the benefits.
Whilst you can add our solutions to your existing available space, why not use World Mental Health Day to totally redesign your breakout area or staff canteen?
Coinadrink works with trusted shop fitters to not only enhance your available space with this facility, but to totally overhaul it for maximum benefit.
Here are just some of the services we provide:
- Vending “surrounds” that can be custom designed with your corporate logo and colours to entice usage.
- Refreshment breakout areas encourage your staff to relax in comfy booth seating once they have grabbed a coffee or bite to eat.
- Coffee stations and pods that house office coffee machines alongside ancillaries such as coffee cups and syrups.
- Coffee “carts” that allow you to move your office coffee machine from one location to another, which is great between showrooms and boardrooms.
- Hydration stations that promote healthy hydration at work, equipped with high quality water solutions.
When you have a grand breakout space that staff want to use, it will encourage them to take time out either alone or with colleagues which can help improve mental health.
How our Micro Market solution takes employee wellbeing even further.
The Micro Market takes unattended refreshment solutions to the next level. This 24/7 facility represents a refreshment hub that is custom designed, built and managed by us after install.
It can be as big or small as you need, equipped with exactly the type of refreshment you are looking for from barista-style coffee to fresh food courtesy of our highly regarded fresh food service.
Micro Markets can work for almost any site, but are especially fantastic for sites that may meet the following criteria:
- Large sites with at least 100 staff.
- Serviced buildings.
- Locations in perhaps remote areas with limited access to refreshment services.
Owing to more understanding surrounding employee wellness at work, and perhaps with hybrid working becoming more popular since the Covid-19 pandemic, we have seen sharp demand for this facility in recent years.
An unmanned design open and available 24/7 is just what lots of businesses are now looking for.
Just like with our vending machine services, the Micro Market encourages a meaningful break time with comfy seating and more. Some of our projects have gone even further, realising that such a grand refreshment facility requires a grand space to house it in.
Think flat screen TV’s, gaming stations, dart boards and you won’t be far wrong. The Micro Market can pave the way for a workplace that is nothing like it used to be, if that’s what you want.
Mark World Mental Health with meaningful change.
Regular break times and periods of wind down can help us to de-stress, which in turn can improve our mental health.
On-site vending and refreshment services have been trusted in workplaces for generations and they are now more advanced than ever before, with telemetry and automation helping to deliver a reliable service you can trust.
- Automated replenishment.
- Fast response to service calls (often under 2 hours)
- Helpful customer support.
Whether you just want to add a vending or office coffee machine to your existing space or overhaul your premises with coffee stations, hydration stations, Micro Markets and more, trust Coinadrink with your requirements.
